When Christopher Columbus was looking for sailors in preparation for his first voyage west, supposedly he posted this:
Bold, brave, adventurous souls to accompany me on an exciting voyage.
- Final destination? HOME.
- First few stops? Uncertain, but probably off the maps and charts.
- Length of journey? Unknown.
- Hazards and dangers? Many.
- Cost to you? Your time, money and maybe your life itself.
- Rewards? God alone knows, but God alone decides.
- Opportunity? The one of a lifetime!
~Christopher Columbus, 1491
